Captivating audiences nationally for the past eighteen years as the Mountain Faith Band, this sibling duo, along with their band, offer a musical experience that sets them apart from other musicians.

From small town Sylva, NC, their unique blend of Country, Pop, Bluegrass and Americana, made them a household name as semifinalists on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent. Their ability to manipulate popular songs and add their own personal style immediately captivated audiences both in studio and throughout homes in America, appealing to lovers of all genres of music.

Howie Mandell of AGT said, “This IS America’s music.” Accolades and honors for the band since their debut on AGT include traveling to Doha, Qatar to play for the military. And the exposure to millions of people didn’t stop there as they were featured on multiple appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, the pre-game show concert for Super Bowl LI at NRG Arena in Houston, TX, National Anthems for The Falcons, Panthers, 49ers, Braves and NASCAR all-star truck races, and many festivals, fairs, performing arts centers and colleges.

Rounding out their résumé, they have had the privilege of sharing the stage with legends such as Steven Tyler, Loretta Lynn, Charlie Daniels, Willie Nelson, and Marty Stuart.
